Creating a distinctive, high-impact interior design requires a special attention to finishes. After all, the very same footprint can go in wildly different directions depending on materials, colors, and texture. All of this influences the ultimate feel of your space. In this post, we highlight the custom mid-century modern dimensional tiles by Heath Ceramics: an eye-popping finish as unique as each client, each project.
Heath Ceramics is the winner of the 2015 National Design Award for corporate and institutional achievement given by the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Their modern dimensional tiles are “perfectly imperfect.” The company’s spec booklet explains their outlook, “We celebrate the variation inherent in our product. Each piece is unique.”
Heath Tile is very durable and vitreous, making it suitable for most interior and exterior applications. This mid-century dimensional tile makes for creative floor and wall surfaces, showers, saunas and fountains, kitchen backsplashes, and hearths.
The possibilities really are endless. Heath offers a range of shapes and colors that can be patterned and combined according to a meticulously planned layout and grout spacing. Below are some options:
The earthy, chance aesthetics of ceramic art is part of what makes the medium so special. For instance, did you know that in Japanese ceramic sculpture, the unpredictable transformation of glazes in a firing kiln is valued as the kiss of nature on a human artwork?
From that perspective, the surface undulation, glaze variation, and eventual crazing that can appear on these tiles adds to the individuality of any installation of these unique pieces.
